About our Fundamentals Class:
Meditation: Having problems resting your mind? Find some peace in your mindful movement. We practice our saber work in sets where we practice mindfulness to build a moving meditation. We open and close class with meditation to bring the individual to the ‘moment’. The focus here is Mindfulness.
Combat: Saber combat choreography classes cover basic combat attacks and drills from a broad range of sources as contemporary as SaberCombat, produced by Matthew ‘Novastar’ Carauddo & Mark Preader, a saber-combat choreography style that uses a notation system, to ancient teachings from various japanese sword fighting styles and techniques stemming from Kendo to Aikido. We are not an NCSCS school but we believe in its notation system as a great platform from which to learn how to strike. To learn more about SaberCombat or to order your own copy, please visit: sabercombat.com. The focus here is language.
Yoga: SaberCraft incorporates beginner to moderate level poses of Hatha Yoga led by an Certified Yoga Instructor (RYT 200) including ancient lessons from the 8 Limbs of Yoga. By incorporating practical lessons in everything from hygiene to proper posture, Yoga is the fundamental element that drives the movement in this system. The focus here is proper posture.
Dance: The Dance begins when a saber is held. There is a movement that occurs that binds the saber to the individual. When that saber makes contact with another saber, then the dance between the two grows in complexity. We have developed a choreography group play system that is unique to our school and allows multiple configurations of group combat to occur while remaining safe and elegant. The focus here is movement.
Lore: We incorporate parables and references to all matters of History, Science-Fiction and Fantasy to reach a greater audience. Among several “weapons”, we utilize the LED saber as a weapon we can be familiar with and provides a sense of wonder and awe! By tapping into that part of us, and applying it to the movement in classes we wrap it up with a lesson relating to a work that all class members can relate to. This is something that is unique to SaberCraft and cannot be found anywhere else. The focus here is empowerment.
Immersion: The final piece in our classes that take you someplace else where the Hero is awakened.
